Crate and Tornados

Woo friends...

Back in January mom decided to get me a crate! She thought it would be good to have for when we travel, so she got one of those ones that fold up! Anyroo, I wanted to share a few photos and videos from right when Mom brought it in the house. It is very interesting. I have to say mom is making it a positive place for me to get into. Especially when Tia gets inside it - I really want to be in there too!

Drum roll... who do you think was the first one to get into the crate and take a bath??? If you answered Tia, you are correct!

I just could not stand it! She looked so cute at her that I had to woo at her.

Oh, you want to hear that woo? Your wish is granted! Please excuse the fact that the video is blurry. Apparently mom must have had too much AGJ (adult grape juice) that evening, ha roo roo roooooo!

Oh, and then there is Wonky! He and I get along pretty well. Mom tossed him in the crate. Oh course I went in after him. Oh, there is video of that too!

I don't really get in it and lay down. Tia is the one who does that. She drags toys into the crate... mine and hers! I have not been "zipped up" in it yet... mom mentioned something about trying that out since now I am used to going in and out of it!

So... moving on to last night! We had a tornado come right past our house! Mom was very scared. The storm system that had the tornados in it, hit within a mile of my granna's house, within a mile of my greatgranna's house, and within a mile of my house! All in three different counties! We did not have damage to our home or yard. This was not as bad as the tornados that rolled through almost a year ago. We all huddled up in the closet downstairs together last night - with the laptop! Thanks to SMS who helped keep my mom sane!!!

I am sorry that I am not commenting all the time on your blogs. I am reading them, I promise!

Toodles and Hugs! Sitka

We were glad to be there fur her and fur WOO!

We were glad woo were a brave Sibe and kept an eye on Tia too!!


Kathryn and Ari said...

Sitka, you're so polite and generous. Ari gets absolutely indignant when one of the cats sleeps on her bed or goes inside her crate. Maybe you could teach her to be more understanding?

Comet and BLU said...

Those tornadoes sound very scary. We are glad they missed your house.

I have a crate but almost never get to use it. BLU goes in and hogs it. She even pulls the door closed. I get her back though. I sit in front of the door and block it so she can't get back out. hehehehe.

Hey Sitka, I like your box! I love my box too. I hang out in it all the time. Mom is wondering what brand your box is. She's never seen one like that.

I'm glad you guys were okay in those tornadoes. My mom would have been terrified.

Joe Stains said...

Tanner had one of those crates and he destroyed it. NOw he is a metal cage because he can't claw through that. Tia is so funny for going in there!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

The Daily Echo said...

Sitka, you're such a good egg for sharing your crate with Tia. We love our crates. Mom finds us sound asleep in them during the day. She always comes looking when it's too quiet. She always thinks we're getting into mischief. What is it with her??

Amber-Mae said...

Hey big crate! It's good to share, hehe!

Love licks,

Lady Kaos said...

Wow! That sounds scarey! I'm glad you are all okay. Mom used to live in an area where there were lots of tornados and is happy to not be there anymore. There's some around here about twice a year but they're on the edge of town out where there's a few houses, but mostly industrial type businesses.
That looks like a nice crate. It almost looks like a tent for camping!

The Army of Four said...

WONKY! I heard WONKY! I HEARD him!!!!!!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, woo. I forgot - we're all REALLY glad you stayed safe during the tornadoes! Way to protect your mom and dad and Tia!
PS: Did you bring WONKY into the closet so he was safe, too!?!?!

The Brat Pack said...

Thank Dog you're ok. Tell your Mom sorry our Mom hasn't been around, she's puny. Yuck.

We hate storms, especially after last year.

That's a cool crate...I think I would like to have one.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Sitka!
Your mom gave you a very nice crate! I think Tia likes it too!
Glad to know that you all are ok! Tornados are scary!
Kisses and hugs

Luckie Girl said...

I have a crate to travel in too but Mom hates it cos it's very bulky. So now I travel in a sling bag, it's easier for Mom to carry me around.

Murphey said...

A Tornado! Oh my gosh. We once had the tornado sirens go off at our house and the lady freaked out and made all of us get in the closet. We had two visiting BIG dogs, so it was four dogs and one person in a two foot by two foot closet, it was wild.

Hi-Woo Sitka,
That's a pretty spiffy looking crate. We are so very glad to see Tia up & about & looking well. We were worried about her. That tornado thing sounds so scary. We are glad all of your family is OK.

Glad you were all safe from the tornado! They scare my mom really bad too!

Your crate looks really comfy. And if you get bored, you can probably just rip it up and get out. Cool!

Tornados? That sounds very scary. We're glad you have a safe place to go and that your house and yard seemed to be untouched. Phew.

We love the pics and video's of the new crate. Very cute!

Oooh ooh, those tornados sound mean. Glad that you guys are safe.

Nice crate! Wonder if it's nice when you're zipped up inside though.
